This restaurant has a great wine list, and a fun,long bar, as well as a comfortable dining area. The mussels are special, and the salads and small plates are good.

Tucked behind the NE side of fair oaks and Howe, this French inspired restaurant is on of my local favorites They have amazing specials daily. Rack of Lamb with mint oil, always Filet with chanterelle Mushrooms, either a fresh pasta or risotto, short ribs and then their very large menu with mussels, tartlets. Nice music, small restaurant and great service.... More

From the outside the restaurant looks "divey" when compared to the upscale-looking restaurant next to it. However, (!!!) this french bistro has excellent food and service. We both had mussels (very fresh), each with a different sauce (very tasty), delicate french fries (unusual adjective for fries, right?), nicely presented, delicious cauliflower soup and a real Caesar Salad. Wait staff was... More

The rib eye was too tough to slice, let alone eat. The burger also had its share of gristle. The waiter was good and made some good recommendations, but the host sat at the bar and ate all night. Too bad, this place used to be good. Won't be back and won't bother trying the cafe location now.

Want to be honest up front: I didn't eat at the restaurant. My review is based on why not. Not a good first impression, for one thing. Parked next to the restaurant and it was a turnoff seeing workers in an outside break area smoking in plain sight in an unsightly area. That's not uncommon, but the deal breaker was... More

The spring onion soup is superb and the salads fresh, clean and creative with just enough to satisfy. Good cocktails too. Staff excellent and very welcoming.

Wednesday, 6 P.M. reservations for 4, with two local friends. Excellent parking experience. Located in Eastern Sacramento, without the downtown chaos. We were seated immediately, and service was excellent. Two parties had house wines, and they were "Good". I had a wonderful alcohol-free beer, imported (designated driver). Clean, spacious, very pleasant atmosphere. The customers were obviously 99% regular locals. The... More

I have visited Plan B restaurant more than six times and each time I had an excellent meal. The food has flavors that are like a symphony with never a discordant note. The presentation is colorful and enticing. The dishes are always well cooked. The service is very good and the senior members of the staff are friendly without being... More

I was in the area on business and wanted something nice. I found Plan B, simply put it's a rare find for the area. Excellent food, wine & a full bar. Plan B also delivers high quality and really great prices. Another great touch that I like is that the owner comes by to every table. The wait staff is... More
